    It's Friday, it's FREAKANGELS.

    Morning, Whitechapel. We're a week off from xmas, so I'd imagine some of you are probably preemptively medicating, broke, and/or looking for ways to fake your own deaths. Alternatively, I'm sure someone's in a good mood and looking forward to family. Freaks. How's everyone, anyway?

    I love Christmas! I am broke though...

    I also like how my work lunch ties in with Freakangels releases.

    Wondering! Is this referencing internet trends ('All your forthcoming bone fractures are belong to us'/'I can has vodka?') just netnerd injokes, or is it it part of the cultural future Warren's created in Whitechapel?

    Oh man, that last line is amazing!

    I'm liking Luke as a character, it's still really unclear to me as to where he's coming from. Very interesting. Again to Mr. Ellis and Mr. Duffield: Kudos.

    Also, I am leaving Austin tomorrow for my big Christmas journey around the Gulf of Mexico. Dive bars all along the southern Seabord are already trembling with fear.

    Well, after a line like "all your forthcoming bone fractures are belong to us" the world makes sense again. I think the temperature went up a few degrees too.

    we approve of net culture references!

    My lovely Sirkka is going to nail Luke's ass to the wall (figuratively speaking)... :)

    Also, great final shot of KK and Caz against one of said walls--edit out the speech balloons and it would make an excellent desktop background.

    @nigredo. Indeed - now I want Llamasoft references in there too. It can't be too difficult to get Space Giraffes or Mutant Camels in there, can it?

    As for this episode, a small eddy of calm before next episode - good to take a breather.

    @Ariana. Is Ep40 coming out Jan 2? Or are you putting it out on auto-pilot next week?

    Not quite sure what's what yet, Dan. I'll likely be around over the holidays, either way -- but then I'm always on a bit of auto-pilot come 4am PST...!

    Great closing line from KK.

    I'm so sad none of you are giving Caz credit for -- oh god I'm so sorry -- setting KK up the punchline.

    FA makes me tingle with excitement. I think I'm falling for Alice a bit, even if she is a dirty red Manc.

    Life is alright. Christmas is near and I might go to Moscow for the second time ever in February. Life~!

    Luke is in trouble. I think he did something fundamentally bad. I believe the mortar launching assault team are just a distraction to cause confusion while the real threat is deployed.

    Next week will be explosive, no doubt... can hardly wait.

    Ha-hah! was not expecting that last panel, well played.

    Time for a shower and then the maddening final prep and wait for my mother to pick me up en route to Rapid City, SD for my brother's college graduation tomorrow, he's a crazy-ass Chemistry/Food Science nerd that makes many delicious foods and has procured miracle fruit for us to try.

    Next week will be Christmas and a skip week, from what I understand. January 2 will be stick figures and hungover rambling. Freakangels will probably not return until January 9, but will be well worth the wait.

    @john - Oh you might be wrong, so wrong. Me thinks we have a few surprises up our sleeves for the Holidays...
  5.  (4516.16)
    exciting as always

    Interesting how the "most intellectual Freakangel" is a little dumb on some fundamental level. He's just pushing for a beatdown. Poor Conner, Alice is cutting him apart with every memory she shares, isn't she? How do explain to the woman you love that you and your buddies destroyed her entire civilization because you got tired of running from some tiny covert military-science portion of it?

    I'm guessing that last part as it strikes me as unlikely that the British government would make a general public announcement that the Freakangel kids were deadly psychics. For one thing, no one in Whitechapel knows about that part of them and surely Whitechapelers had access to television before the Splash. It also seems to fit the situation. The 'angels were born into their little village. Eventually the government investigated them and took them into custody. Then they escaped and spent time running from the secret forces pursuing them. They got sick of the running and broke the world to make it stop.

    OK is anyone else seeing a BIG SCARY FACE in the sky on the last page? It's not just my monitor, or the shakes and I havent taken my meds this morning. I cant work out who it is, Mark maybe? Its freaky and awesome and SCARY.
    Damn I'm hungover...

    Somebody set up them the bomb.

    @johnjones - do you think Connor is in love with Alice? My impression was that it was always more of a protective instinct on his part.

    And his pained body-language in this episode seems to be a bad case of lack of exercise, possibly combined with smoker's lung? Not surprising for a guy who lives in his head most of the time. :)
